About Esther

From a young age, Esther has always enjoyed art. Her first form of proper arts education started at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, where she took a course in Western Art. She has since held various roles in the art industry such as an Assistant Art Director, to a freelance graphic designer later on in her career.

In 2015, Esther took an interest to watercolour and brush calligraphy, picking up the skill on her own. Her background as a graphic designer has helped her create artwork, designs and her self-published books which she currently sells online.

In addition, Esther is also a guest designer at Prima Marketing, which is a brand based in the United States. She teaches a multitude of watercolour classes from the classic flower wreaths to realistic looking animals and landscapes.

On Instagram and Youtube, Esther frequently shares her work and instructional videos to promote self-growth and improvement. Her teaching style is easy and approachable, presenting a digestible lesson on watercolour for all ages. It is no wonder why many students come back for more. Recently, she has been seeing more students from overseas who fly into Singapore to attend her private workshops.

Thank you Esther for the wonderful class. We enjoy every bit of it and love your work. Especially when some of us are your followers on instagram. ☺️
We booked a private session(bachelorette party) and we had loads of fun snapping photos. Esther was very nice and patient with us when we are busy and distracted. We learned brush calligraphy and some basic florals, as most of us are beginners. Esther taught us the basic strokes and went around to check on our work to give us pointers. And while we were practicing, Esther did an A4 painting with a quote on the spot for the bride to be. Also a few demo pieces which were given to us in a lucky draw.

Some refreshments were provided during the class and we were totally enjoying the food. All our coffee even have coffee art such as bear, panda, bulldog and etc, which was lovely. Then at the end of the class, we had some nachos made by Esther. It was really good and the girls could not stop eating. 5 star for the class! Thank you for decorating the venue for us and really glad that we came for your class.

I’ve been to Esther’s workshops in total 3 times, and by the 3rd workshop, I already have enough confidence to try and paint on my own! The experience will stick with you. The workshop comes with supplies you can bring home that is perfect for beginners so the whole package is really worth it, especially when the paint can last you for quite awhile before you splurge on some yourself!
